Repeat performance

Brossoit; "I like to get involved nice and early and often."

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / Winnipeg Jets

WINNIPEG MB - Laurent Brossoit made sure his second start as a Winnipeg Jet was just as good as the first.

 

In his first start, Brossoit set a Jets 2.0 record for most saves by a goaltender in his first start with 42 saves. On Saturday afternoon, the BC native recorded 42 more stops in a 5-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Jets defence plays key role offensively in win over Arizona

Trouba, Morrissey, Myers combine for seven points

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Good defence leads to good offence. 

That's what the Winnipeg Jets preach. On Saturday night against the Arizona Coyotes, the defencemen were a big part of that offence.

Josh Morrissey and Tyler Myers each had a goal and an assist, while Jacob Trouba added three assists of his own in a 5-3 Jets win. 

Add it all up and those three defencemen combined for seven points.

"We definitely have the capability to get in on the offence there on the back end. It's good to see," said Trouba. "It was a back and forth game. We'd get up and get playing pretty well and they'd get on us. We'd kind of have lulls and it went back and forth for pretty much the whole game."

Brossoit set to make second start of the season Saturday against Arizona

25-year-old made 42 saves in season debut victory over Carolina

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Laurent Brossoit's first regular season start as a member of the Winnipeg Jets was a memorable one, as the 25-year-old made 42 saves to help the Jets to a win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Saturday against the Arizona Coyotes, he'll have a chance to do it again.

Brossoit will get the start against the Coyotes and says the in-game experience plus all the practice time with the same Jets defencemen have helped increase his comfort level in the crease with his new team.

"Even things like playing the puck and getting used to your D-corps and where you expect them to be. Just the line rushes against you in your end zone starts to feel more and more familiar," said Brossoit.

"Confidence comes with experience. To be able to come here and have a strong preseason and get in with a strong first start with these guys and get a win under my belt, it's only going to make it easier and easier to feel good out there."

Byfuglien records three points in return as Jets down Canucks

Jets score three unanswered goals in the third to snap Canucks' win streak

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - It was just the third period the Winnipeg Jets needed.

Tied 1-1 with the Vancouver Canucks through 40 minutes - and after learning a tough lesson just two nights earlier against the Edmonton Oilers - the Jets made sure the outcome on Thursday night would be different.

The Jets scored three unanswered goals in the final 20 minutes to seal a 4-1 win over the Canucks, improving the Jets record to 4-2-1.

"It was kind of the opposite of last game. We did a good job of getting better throughout the game and the third period was our best," said Bryan Little, who finished with the eventual game winner, his second in three games. "It was a good response by us."

Jets ready to move on

Hellebuyck; "We'll use it as a learning experience."

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / Winnipeg Jets

WINNIPEG MB - The 5-4 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night at Bell MTS Place may sting the Winnipeg Jets for a while. But the one thing about this team is that they've been able to immediately put the last game behind them, good or bad.

GAME DAY: Jets vs Canucks

7:00 pm CT - TV: TSN 3; Radio: TSN 1290

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Two words. That's all head coach Paul Maurice needed this morning.

"He's in."

After missing the last two games with an upper-body injury, defenceman Dustin Byfuglien will return to the Winnipeg Jets line-up tonight against the Vancouver Canucks.

He'll slot back in on the right side with Ben Chiarot on the blue line, and will try to help the Jets rebound from Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers. 

The loss was a hard lesson to learn. Captain Blake Wheeler said while a lot of the names in the dressing room are the same from last season, it doesn't mean any aspect of this season will be easy - that includes holding leads in the third period.

"You look at 52 wins and it looks like it came easy. But it was a daily, non-stop process to get to where we got to," said Wheeler. "It's always a struggle. Every team is different. We have a completely different group of guys in here. It shouldn't be easy. It's never going to be easy. This is a tough league. We're trying to figure that out."

Oilers rally to hand Jets heartbreaking overtime loss

Jets give up four unanswered after building a three-goal lead through 40 minutes

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - It was the definition of a heartbreaker, and in Adam Lowry's mind, the heartbreak was the Winnipeg Jets' own doing.

The Jets held period leads of 3-1 and 4-1 over the Edmonton Oilers, but gave up four unanswered goals in to fall 5-4 in overtime at Bell MTS Place.

"I just think we shot ourselves in the foot. We started trying to make plays at the blue line. We fed into their transition game. We were on our heels in the third," said Lowry.

"We get up 3-1 and 4-1, and we start trying to make plays, trying to fit things into the middle that maybe weren't there. We got away from what was creating success for us in the first period. That's the result that's going to happen."
